No one of hotel staf greating, only receptionis when we check out, attendant clean the room but forget to put back clean towel,bath matt ,and room telephone cant use,at night after midnight no more hot water
It's old fashioned hotel. It was just okay. Fine. But it still needs phisical improvement.
A great location and easy access.
Hotel was good, but sometimes internet connection not so good.
Old hotel, room smelly, toilet not really clean.
A great location with fair price
We had really a good stay there. Parking lots are provided, ease in finding parking.
Very comfort hotel, recomended.
the property has been seriously worn out, need a comprehensive renovation. I had problem with Safe mini box, I had to wait a long time until I get help. No service directory in the room, so that if I want to call house keeping, I don't know the number to call. No wheel chair for my sick mom. There are three elevators, when we push the button, the light on is lift A, but the lift that opens is C. The WiFi works well, Air conditioners work well.

not bad- but not great
check in was smooth, despite requesting a room on lower floors due to my fear of heights they laughed and told me to enjoy the view from level 32. Ok so it wasn't so bad being up that high, i just closed the curtains so i didn't have to look. The lifts are very slow and old and creak and wobble- doesn't help when you are already afraid of heights. breakfast buffet was terrible, and not worth the price of it. room was large and spacious but run down and old, carpet stains and rips and very much in the need of a good paint and clean up. The pool areas look to be under construction or renovation but the kids enjoyed what was available staff are reasonably friendly and the location is good for access to the local malls etc. i won't stay here again.

Old and not well maintained
Stayed at 2 rooms apartment at 11th floor. - Old furniture with sunken and smelly sofas. Unpleasant smell on the pillow, stained and torn duvet cover. - Torn and dirty curtain throughout the apartment. And can't fully close the curtain - No hot shower even after letting the water runs for 30mins as advices by the hotel. - Dirty toilet bowl, shower curtain/wall - Don't expect anything from the housekeeping. Didn't make the bed properly. Didn't replace the towel accordingly. - Safe box not working - wifi keep disconnecting and re-register + friendly and nice bell boy + location in front of the beach

So so but good location
The apartment is kind of old, but spacious and clean. Room & Furnitures need refurbished. We got two rooms apartment, one queen bed with bathroom, one twin beds. Is good for family, friends and business if you need a common place while having privacy in individual room. Overall good

Good location. Easy access to restaurant & shopping mall. Spacious room with a nice seaview but the wifi was soooo slow & unfortunate for my kids, the swimming pool was closed for renovation. Recommended place to stay & definitely will come again.

Roomy, great service and views
We came to this hotel without any knowledge and have been pleasantly surprised by the rooms, the service, the facilities. We have 2 x 2 bedroom apartments and 1 standard double room. All are equipped with all toiletries, tea/coffee facilities, free wifi and a spa bath. Have not been able to fault the place, only to say that it is older, but well used. We will return one day.
